    Any English pale 2-row malt would work as a sub or pale ale malt

    if you want to replicate it just try 95% 2 row and 5% victory malt

    Golden Promise is similar, if they have it.

    For base malts they list:

    American 2 row
    Munich I
    German Pilsner
    Belgian Pilsner
    Maris Otter (when they have it)

    They also have Vienna and Victory but they list those as specialties...

    if you're looking for a pale 2-row malt, looks like you've got 1 choice.. personally I've been on a kick of German pilsner based beers. can't go wrong with that.

    2 row and victory as suggested , Vienna is a great malt but I keep it as a max 20% of grist

    Thanks, guys. Looks like 2-row + Victory will be my best bet for now. Hope to try this recipe with MO later, but I want this batch ready by Xmas, so no time to lose!

    Hard work getting most beers ready by then , night sneak a hoppy APA in by then if you're quick .
    If you had access to coopers commercial yeast you'd manage
    9-12 days fermentation and 10 in bottle

    Well I'm trying to plan one more ale before Christmas it will be a tight squeeze but I think it's possible given my last grain to glass turn around of less then two weeks with my pils/ale recipe ;)

    We did a porter that was ready for Thanksgiving (by Nov 24th). It was 40 days from brewday-- I thought it was great. My buddy thought it was still astringent on the end of the sip. Probably the roasted barley. My guess is your London Porter recipe should be okay by Christmas since there's no roasted barley and was close in ABV to what I came out with.

    Yeah, it's a bit late for the 25th, now that you mention it... but I won't have time until the weekend, so it'll be done when it's done.

    Went to LHBS this afternoon and HUZZAH! They have Maris Otter!!

    Thanks for all the suggestions, folks, but fortunately I don't have to substitute now - My London Porter will be built to the original blueprint :D
